Celebration of New Beginnings

Mark your calendars now!!!!

On Saturday, October 4, 2014 at 3:00pm, we will have a fantastic collaboration with Christ Church, The Young Opera Company of New England, and Baritone Marcus DeLoach in celebration of new ministry at both of our congregations!

Our Youth Choir, Chamber choir, and all other youth able to make Youth Choir rehearsals in September (grades 3rd-12th) will sing and act in the children’s opera, “The Seven Goats” by Humperdinck.

Our Sanctuary Choir will sing the Five Mystical Songs (Barbara Bruns, Organist/Laura Weiss conducting) for the second half of the program, collaborating once again with Christ Church and their fabulous choir. The soloist, Marcus DeLoach, is a great contribution to this event!

Christ Church will graciously host this event as we hosted the Stainer, Crucifixion and Barbara and Laura have started planning! As this event comes up very quickly in the fall, rehearsals for choir this year will begin earlier than usual for some and will definitely start with a bang for all.

Special Dates to note:
  • YOUTH SINGERS ONLY! We will get a head start on staging and memorizing the children's opera by holding a Singer's workshop on Friday, August 29 from 9:00-3:00pm and Saturday, August 30 from 9:00-2:00pm. This is Labor Day weekend. The fee is $50 for the 2 days. THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO THE ADULT CHOIR.
  • ALL CHOIRS will begin after Labor Day and NOT after homecoming. Chamber choir will start September 3, Youth Choir and Sanctuary choir on September 4. IMPORTANT: The first 25 ADULT singers who are committed to this event may participate. We have 45 choir members on our roster so this means I need a commitment asap from those who are able. The balcony has a fire code that permits only 50 singers at Christ Church. First come first served! ANY South Church singer may participate (this includes NON choir members though our entire choir will hopefully sing).
  • Scores for practicing over the summer are available for both youth and adult choirs. Recordings are available online as well for those who want to practice prior.
Please email Minister of Music Laura Weiss at lweiss@southchurch.com with any questions! Details are still coming together!
